My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me I have been backpacking a little over 3 years now, but in that time I have logged a number of trail miles and went through a lot of gear trying to find my sweet spot. Now, thanks to cuben fiber, alcohol stoves, down and of course a better understanding, my TPW has severly dropped! My cold weather BPW is 9 - 10 lbs and my warm weather BPW is 5 - 6 lbs.
About 95% of the time I hike with family or friends and in the SouthEastern states. My favorites places to get away are anywhere along the AT as well as in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Re: that's cool!!
If you are concerned about the number of parts, you could easily do away with the Esbit stove and the pot stand and pick up one of Smokeeater908's rollover stoves. It is an alky stove and weigh...

My take on 10D and final weights
I have had some experience with 10D. I picked up a few yards of the Kelley Green from Ti Goat a while back to make a quilt (although, I never made the quilt). I had a Prodigy quilt from Enlightened...

Depends on your need
I actually have both. I initially wanted the nonstick, but at the time, due to the tsunami I had to take what I could get before everything was gone, so I ended up with the nonstick. Then, a few mo...

I generally carry 2, 20 oz Gatorade bottles, one on each shoulder strap. (I used to carry just one 32 oz Gatorade bottle, but as my pack weight got lighter, I noticed how uneven the weight was with...
